About

National Park Service

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area

Overview

Kettle Falls Campground is on the northern section of Lake Roosevelt and convenient to the town of Kettle Falls. The facility has a multi-lane boat launch, making it popular among boaters, fishermen and water sports enthusiasts. The Kettle Falls area is rich in the history of American Indians as well as the fur trade; campers can learn more at a park visitor center less than 10 miles away. Lake Roosevelt is a 130-mile lake on the Columbia River created by the Grand Coulee Dam. Named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it is part of the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area and managed by the National Park Service.

Recreation

The boat launch is directly within the facility, so many recreation activities can take place from the campground, including boating, fishing and water skiing. However, the lake is not very accessible to swimmers since there is a rocky descent from the campground to the water.

Facilities

__The facility is conveniently located near the town of Kettle Falls and within 10 minutes of grocery stores and other amenities. The visitor center is also in town.__ This campground has 74 sites and is by reservation only.____

Natural Features

The campground is forested and overlooks Lake Roosevelt. Much of the water originates from glaciers and snow in the cold, high Canadian Rockies, although lake temperatures are pleasant to swim in during summer. The area is abundant with wildlife, including moose, elk, deer and bald eagles. Dozens of species of fish inhabit the lake, such as walleye, bass, rainbow trout, salmon and sturgeon; fishing for sturgeon is now allowed during a limited season.

Nearby Attractions

The historic St. Paul's Mission, which is run by the National Park Service, is located about two miles from campground. Also in the area are Fort Colville and the Hudson Bay Company Post on the Upper Columbia. St. Paul's Mission. Sherman drive, a scenic loop, is nearby.

Busy Campground next to Full Service Marina

The Kettle Falls Campground sits on the Upper Columbia River in a popular recreational area.

The campsites are not very private but a few offer stunning views of the river. The campground is busy on the weekends. If you’re looking for peace and quiet try camping during the week.

There are no services except for a few vault toilets and a dump station. However, there’s a full service marina next door. The marina is a popular fishing and water sport destination in the summer.

The campground is clean and well maintained. The sites are small so parking a big rig will be a hassle.

Overall, the Kettle Falls Campground is a great place to access the Upper Columbia River. However, there is little privacy and it gets busy on the weekends.

Great Spot for Spring Camping

After our second visit to the CG in three weeks I would say that this place is an esp great place to camp in early spring when there are less campers and a quieter experience. Maybe best of all there are no bugs out tonspeak of yet. The sites are close together so I can see how in the busy season it would.be a less appealing experience. Bottom line though it is a nice spot. The roads are decently paved, the spots are clearly marked, the bathrooms are clean and nice, and there is good access to hydrants for water. Three to four spots per loop have great views of the Columbia River, but to get to the waters edge you have to decent maybe 20 feet down. It seems kids love to ride their bikes around the paved loops for entertainment. Boat launch is nearby and so us Kettle Falls for an ice cream run. When we called people were friendly and honored quiet hours.

Spacious River View

Nice campground along Columbia River. Spacious sites with plenty of room and cleared out under trees. Marina very close to launch boats and within driving of a number of nice trails. Only complaint was the number of bugs made it less enjoyable outside when it was warm. Visited nearby Sherman Peak trail & Columbia Mt. Trials
